More swiffer pads

My last ones didn't wear out but became too flat and just didn't t do the job as well soooo here are some new ones.  My own pattern which I just made up as I went along.   I constructed these in one pass start to finish. They slip on like a slipper and have a tie to keep them in just the right spot.  

They can be easily removed for cleaning and reused.  I always make at least two so that there are no excuses for cleaning.

Ear cozy

This is what I did today, replaced those foam covers on a very useable headset with crochet cotton ones.  It took only a few minutes.

I started with 12 double crochet in a circle, then doubled that on the next row.  Next a row of single crochet then a row of half as many and finish off.  Now make another and done.

Knitted Slippers

 You might think I live in the Southern Hemisphere as I have  knitted some warm slippers, but no I just found more yarn.  You can see the label below and I believe this is a lovely 3 ply worsted Merino wool from  Norway.  The label say it was made in 1965.  Please correct me if I am  wrong.  I have three large skeins, all different color blends.

I made these slippers after converting a free pattern from   It took me a few tries to get the size correct but I've written the pattern out so I can make another when needed.  

How does one "find" yarn, every crafter knows. :)
